2 vols, large-8vo, qtr cloth, rebacked with new cloth spines in the original style, with gilt/blind rules, original marbled boards; marbled edges; book-plates to endpapers. As usual with this work, there is some foxing to the text and marginal spotting to some plates; title-page/frontis to Vol. I have some damage due to adhesion of the pigment, with some loss of text to the author's name and slight damage to the plate figure.
